Tafwyl is Cardiff’s annual Welsh language arts & culture festival. The festival was established by the charity Menter Caerdydd in 2006 to celebrate the use of the Welsh language in Cardiff.
Tafwyl’s footfall has grown incredibly over the last few years, from just over 1,000 during its early days at local pub Y Mochyn Du, to over 40,000 in 2018.
Tafwyl 2018 saw 21,000 attending the fair on the Saturday, and 16,500 on the Sunday. Attendance during the week’s fringe festival reached 2,500, enjoying a total of 33 events across the city. The total footfall for Tafwyl 2018 including both fair and fringe, reached a massive 40,000, compared to the 38,000 in 2017.
Tafwyl 2017 was named ‘Cardiff’s Best Festival’ at the Cardiff Music Awards in March 2018.
Tafwyl is a family friendly festival, and is a lively mix of music, literature, drama, comedy, art, sports, food & drink. The event is nine days in total: a fringe event held all around the city for 7 days, ending with the main event at Cardiff Castle.
